Hyphens[edit]

WP:HYPHEN is quite clear: "A hyphen is not used after a standard -ly adverb (a newly available home, a wholly owned subsidiary)". I see no reason not to follow that guideline in the case of ACCC conductor. Do you have some problem with that guideline? Chris the speller yack 22:29, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, I did not see that you left a message on its talk page. I will answer there. Chris the speller yack 22:40, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Later[edit]

Posting here in case you're still working there, so as not to cause more EC. Time for my sleep period, back in about 8 hrs. ―Mandruss  14:04, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

@Mandruss: It wasn't a serious complaint; just after the second edit conflict I noticed how often you'd revised your comments and felt entitled to grumble slightly. The thoughtful reply is worth more than the pique. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 02:55, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Reference errors on 24 January[edit]

Hello, I'm ReferenceBot. I have automatically detected that an edit performed by you may have introduced errors in referencing. It is as follows:

Please check this page and fix the errors highlighted. If you think this is a false positive, you can report it to my operator. Thanks, ReferenceBot (talk) 00:25, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Yes, thank you, I know. The work has a long subtitle, which I included as |subtitle=The Normal and Transverse Mercator Projections on the Sphere and the Ellipsoid with Full Derivations of all Formulae= which I wish I could include in the citation, but it a bit unwieldy to append to the main title. So I left it as an obviously-named parameter to let another editor figure out what to do. The error is fundamentally harmless. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 01:29, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Coords precision[edit]

Hey, I hope you intend to return to our mini-project. We've invested a lot in it, we're close to something good for the project (but not quite there), and you're the key player. See my latest comments, if you haven't already. Shane, come back! ―Mandruss  02:35, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Absolutely! Sorry, I was sick for a few days, which led to a backlog on non-wikipedia tasks, which I'm trying to dig out from. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 08:37, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Hello again. After seven months, is it safe to assume that your interest in this has evaporated? Is that because you disagree that a one-peer review is needed? I could seek that review myself, but the request would likely be ignored coming from me. If anyone were going to speak up in favor of accepting the table without a review, I think they would have already done so in that thread.

@Mandruss: No, it's just embarrassment about having dropped the ball. No disagreement of any sort at all. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 17:22, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
The cure for that is to pick up the damn ball again. :) But, should you choose not to, I won't bother you about it again. ―Mandruss  03:10, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Non-free logo usage[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. We always appreciate when users upload new images. However, it appears that one or more of the images you have recently uploaded or added to a page, specifically List of political parties in Austria, may fail our non-free image policy. Most often, this involves editors uploading or using a copyrighted image of a living person. For other possible reasons, please read up on our Non-free image criteria. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:59, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Just to clarify, the logo files you re-added to the article are non-free which means that each use of them is required to satisfy all 10 non-free content criteria listed in WP:NFCCP. Non-free logos are not allowed to be used like "pseudo-icons" because such usage is primarily decorative as explained in MOS:LOGO and WP:NFTABLES/WP:NFLISTS. Such usage typically does not provide the context required by WP:NFCC#8 or satisfies the minimal use required by WP:NFCC#3. The use in the list article also failed WP:NFCC#10c. If you disagree, and feel that such use does satisfy WP:NFCC, please provide a non-free use rationale explaining how for each use. If you're not sure, feel free to ask for the opinions of others at WP:MCQ or WT:NFCC.
FWIW, linking to non-free files is something that is allowed and is often prferred by some editors over outright removal; in this case, however, the use of even freely licensed logos as "icons" is something not recommended by MOS:LOGO, so all the logos should probably be removed. -- Marchjuly (talk) 22:12, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
@Marchjuly: Thanks for the info. I always assumed that political parties would want to be associated with their logo, so it wasn't a big deal, but you're right WP has to be careful in general. Even though it is clearly "fair use", you're right that it doesn't meet the stricter WP:NFCC#8; while it's nice to have, it doesn't "significantly increase readers' understanding". As for WP:NFCC#3, I think you're misreading it. The minimalism addressed is the amount of source material used (3a: the number of items or 3b: the size/extent of each item), more than the number of times it is used. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 16:22, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

@333-blue: Thanks! The creation was a bit rough (documentation wasn't wrapped in <noinclude>, the header requesting two names was made part of the template instead of being acted upon), but I fixed those, and made a request for a rename & redirect creation. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 04:27, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
And I've contested the move request, because the template isn't necessary for it's purpose. Prime characters due not conflict with italics. Pppery 12:13, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
Actually, it's contesting the creation of the template, not the move per se. Further discussion at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2016 October 30#Template:′ 71.41.210.146 (talk) 05:20, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
